MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (April 29, 2011) — The law firm of Gray Plant Mooty is pleased to announce that Peter Klarfeld—a principal in its Franchise & Distribution practice group—has been named a 2011 Washington, DC Super Lawyer. Klarfeld will be recognized in Washington, DC Super Lawyers magazine and the March/April 2011 issue of DCmagazine.

“Super Lawyers” are identified through a comprehensive, peer-reviewed evaluation process, which includes surveying thousands of attorneys and asking them to nominate the best attorneys they have personally observed in action. Nominees are scored based on the number of votes they receive, with more weight given to votes from outside their own firms. Only the top 5 percent of lawyers, from nearly 70 practice areas, are named "Super Lawyers.”

Klarfeld concentrates his practice on franchise litigation. He is one of the most experienced franchise trial and appellate lawyers in the country and has represented many of the largest franchisors in federal and state courts throughout the United States. Klarfeld is also a well-respected leader of the franchise bar.
